ESPN Player EvaluationsEvaluation Conversation Strengths:
Thomas has a great body with plenty of strength, length, and athleticism at his disposal, in addition to being left handed. Thomas does a great job of scoring around the basket, using his good leaping ability to out-jump opponents. He also gets off the floor quickly which catches defenders off-guard when Thomas grabs an offensive rebound and quickly goes up for the finish before defenders have time to react. Defensively, he's much more effective defending the interior than perimeter and is a good weak side shot blocker.
Kevin rarely takes full advantage of physical his tools around the rim, instead drifting to the perimeter, and although he has solid ball skills would be much more effective playing the game inside-out. He should be a good rebounder but he doesn't put a big enough emphasis on it.
Kevin Thomas is a physical specimen who needs to continue to work on his skill set. He is very strong and has the ability to score both inside and outside. He has all of the tools to become a very good player, now he needs to work on his game. He really runs well and is an active rebounder at times, but needs to get more consistent in all of these areas of the game.

This is actually kind of funny! My comment was just a little joke, but I forgot that there is another Kevin Thomas from Brampton. I guess that is where the confusion lies with all the commentary during the tournament. The Kevin Thomas that just recently made a verbal commitment to the Texas Longhorns is from Ajax, Ontario. He attended Pickering High School two years ago and played on the 2009 OFSAA bronze medal team with Jonathan Tull and Rob G. After the 2009 season, he transferred to Christian Faith Academy in Creemoor, North Carolina and has been there since. He is definitley from Ajax and not Brampton like it is sometimes reported. The millionaire dollar question is what going on with the other Kevin Thomas from Brampton. Where does he go to prep school? What year is he? How is he doing so far?
